"Clean, green and friendly"

We have lived in Leichhardt for 4 years and it has been a great place to raise our family. With nice locals and neighbours we can rely on. After the floods we were inundated with locals offering support and help, although we were not affected directly, our neighbours were, It was sad but it brought us closer as we all worked together to bring back normality. What we love about Leichhardt is that it is walking distance to the local Newsagant, Doctors, Chemist, Post office, Convenience store and only a short stroll across the one mile bridge to the IGA, Trade Secret, Chemist Wearhouse, a 24 hour gym and even town (I did this regularly while pregnant, that's how close it is). Every time we go to one of the many CLEAN parks there is always someone wanting to chat or just so hi. We have never had a problem with crime and we regularly go for walks of the night time and without a doubt if we see someone on our travels we are always greeted with at least a smile. Other things we love about Leichhardt: It's so convenient with Schools, Day care and welcoming playgroups all close by. The recreation is great with a golf course, footy field, tennis courts the local pool and many parks. If you don't have a car it's no problem as there is great public transport also. Overall Leichhardt is a friendly, clean, leafy green suburb.
Pros
  • Clean and green
  • Close to schools
  • Close to shops
  • Close to transport
  • Close to Golf course

"Great for the family or couples"

Easy access to public transport. Only a couple of minutes to centre of Ipswich but quiet with minimal traffic. Friendly neighbours but not in each others pockets. Close to all amenities you could ask for, from schools to shops to Golf Course & pool. Houses with good size yards. Great place to bring up your family or just to come home to after a busy day at work.work
Pros
  • Close to Golf course
  • Local pool
  • Close to schools
  • Close to shops
  • Close to transport

bexfreedom Yes, because Ipswich is the only place where people get ripped off! I had my car stolen on the Sunshine Coast ( while I was taking care of my father who passed away days later of cancer) and my hubbies car was broken into in Cairns! And also in regards to being ripped off, have you never been to the movies and bought a drink or popcorn, the ekka or maybe even the local show in your town? A concert or two? Do you pay for petrol or get public transport? How can you rate a place because one SILLY shop owner tried to take advantage of people in need and desperation! There is scum everywhere!

cazofoz I had my car broken into in Springfield Lakes... so location is irrelevant to comments like that. It happens everywhere.
